When Colorado City was annexed by Colorado Springs in 1917, the Colorado City Hall and Fire Station at 115 South 26th Street became CSFD Station 5.

In 1920, Colorado Springs bought the Club House of the Standard Mill. After considerable reinforcement and refurbishing, Station 5 went into business at its present location on the Northeast corner of Colorado and 29th Street on February 22, 1921.

Station 5 was remodeled again in 1985 and in 1986 was on the cover of the Children's National Publication My Weekly Reader.

Crews currently in place at Station 5 are an integral part of the CSFD High Angle Rescue Team. The old Colorado City Hall was lost to a 3-alarm fire on June 18, 1990.
